Two players destined for the Hall of Fame did their part to etch their names into history a bit early this weekend.
Jason Kidd, who is already 2nd in NBA history in career assists, moved past Maurice Cheeks for sole ownership of the 4th spot on the NBA’s all-time steals list. John Stockton currently sits at the top of both lists, with marks so high that Kidd would have to significantly upgrade his production (or still be playing when he’s 64) to ever catch him.
Dwight Howard doesn’t have time working against him in quite the same way, and at 24, he’ll likely have a chance to establish and break his own records time and time again throughout the rest of his career. But for now, he’ll have to settle for merely the latest in Magic-centric history: Howard broke the Orlando record for consecutive double-doubles by recording his 20th straight on Saturday. Not a bad mark to hold considering the other esteemed center that once wore an Orlando Magic uniform.
